What Do I Need to Rent a Car?

Having a rental car booked and ready for your trip to Houston will make your visit enjoyable. While most rental car companies restrict access to drivers under 25 years of age, Ability Rent A Car does not. In fact, we allow drivers 18 and older to rent from us. However, there are some key policies and restrictions in place to ensure that every renter is eligible. To book your next rental car with us, here is what you’ll need.

What Do I Need to Rent a Car?

A Valid Driver’s License

When you rent a car from Ability Rent A Car, you’ll need to show a valid driver’s license. Additional drivers will also need to show their valid licenses. You cannot have any restrictions or an expired license when you rent one of our vehicles, because driving around Houston or anywhere in Texas with an expired or invalid license is illegal.

Proof of Residency

In the process of renting your vehicle, we’ll ask for proof of residency. This might include two current (not past due) utility bills that service your current address or bills for gas, cable, electricity, water, or Internet. You may also bring in your last three paycheck stubs, last three bank statements, or residential lease with proof of paying the current month’s rent. Proof of residency must match the address listed on your driver’s license.

Current Car Insurance

When it comes to insurance and your protection, we will work with your private insurer to make sure you’re qualified for a rental. If you’re under 21, we offer vehicle insurance that you can purchase at the time of your rental. If you’re over 21 and are using your private insurer, we will be happy to verify that your insurance covers rentals.

A Deposit

It’s true that Ability Rent A Car is one of the few rental places where you can pay cash. However, we still require a $200 refundable deposit. This deposit is also applicable to those paying with a debit card or credit card. The deposit is held to cover any incidentals that might occur on your trip. such as bringing the car back dirty, with the wrong gas, or driving over your allotted mileage.
